a Haiku

the past year I have written a Haiku

because I have studied Afrikaans (a creolized language related to Dutch dialects of the 17th century and related to the 17th century Dutch sailors-language) the Haiku is in Afrikaans.

‘n Bromvoël in die Karoo

brom, brom, skarrel in die struike

Aasvoëls hang in die lug.

translation: a ground-hornbill in the Karoo/ brom, brom, scrurries in the bushes/vultures hanging in the air.
